New Features and Updates
Since late August, we have been listening to your feedback to make Ancestors the best experience possible. We have fixed some crashes and have made a few feature updates that are now live on all versions: PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Additional tutorials and objectives
For new players, we want to help you better understand how to play the game by adding new tutorial pop-ups and RPG, Generation, and Evolution menu information. To help you get started on your odyssey, new objectives have been added to help you experience the essentials of survival.
Improved item targeting
We’ve improved item targeting based on gameplay context so you pick up the appropriate item for the situation. So the next time a sabretooth tiger is attacking, you should have an easier time selecting a weapon rather than a piece of fruit.
Analyzing clan members from a distance
No need to walk all the way up to your clan members anymore to see how they are doing. You will now be able to analyze them from afar and monitor their status on-the-go.
Additional mimic command
Improving the mimic command was one of your main requests and we heard you well! You can now can command your clan to apply items to themselves and do complex alterations using two items like hitting and grinding.
More frequent encounters with outsiders
We’ve tweaked spawn rules so outsiders can be encountered more frequently.
After evolving into a new species for the first time, you will now be able to start custom games based on a snapshot of your progress, including: species, RPG progress and completed evolution missions.
Lineage Stats and Recap
For statistics aficionados, you can now consult a complete page of your lineage stats within the Pause menu.
Over the past three months, the team was hard at work improving the game for both PC and console and we will keep listening to your feedback for more improvements in the year to come. We still don’t help you much, but we did our best to make your onboarding clearer and more enjoyable.
This is only the beginning of our odyssey.
Good luck on your journey to evolution.
